Miranda has a home waiting for her once she has done her foster period. Miranda is off to foster care tomorrow so her new family will be able to meet her soon.
The reason behind Gaptas fostering a greyhound out prior to offering them for adoption is to prepare them for the many different situations & experiences they will encounter in their new life as a pet. The other aim of foster care is to gauge & provide feedback on the dogs temperament and responses to different situations to determine the most appropriate home to suit the dog. The entire foster period is an information gathering phase as well as setting firm rules and boundaries to help the greyhound transition.
To help the dog along we ask of the following in foster care.
- House training
- Sleeping on their own bed
- Walking calmly on lead
- Walking up and down stairs
- Get in and out of a car
- Alone time
- Basic commands – No, On your bed, Wait
